A Green Striped Orange

I'm going to be a little blog MIA over the next week, as this gal is jetting off (makes it sound cooler than saying I am going to be sitting in row 97 seat Q of a big metal tube at 30,000 feet for work over the weekend) for a week of on-the-road business fun. Please bear with me - I'll catch up with all your blogs again in a few days!

Here's an outfit I wore last week - and yes, I am wearing my new Croc heels again. No, they aren't the sky-height of fashion, but yes, they seriously are comfy. These may save my feet after long hours on my feet at trade shows.

Are there any brands that have surprised you with their new wares? Are there any "not-so-fashionable" brands that you a now a fan of?

  1. I'm having a giveaway too!
    And this is the outfit I wish I was brave enough to wear--I'm currently wearing black & white stripes w.a red skirt! Outfit post on Tuesday.

  2. Sooooooooo super cute I love that you're wearing that green skirt with navy and white stripes!!

    And omg I'm so guilty about wearing crocs too hahaha mostly on vacation though I have a few pairs of ballet flats crocs that I bust out and my husband always makes fun of me.... But to my defense you walk a lot on vacation and I want to be comfortable!!

  3. those crocs are totally cute- and I love the orange and green, definitely the color combo of the spring!

  4. Wow, I never would have guessed your shoes are Crocs!! I love the orange color!

    Have a safe trip this week!!

  5. Thanks for the info on the giveaway! Great outfit, and Im really loving the header!!!!

  6. that skirt is so cute! the whole outfit is too!

  7. Ohhh, I love what you did with this!! I have this skirt but haven't worn it yet; you styled it to perfection.

  8. you look adorable (as always!!)

  9. Oh, you look super cute, Lisa! I tried on this skirt and thought it looked terrible on me. It looks great on you, though. :) And I'm seriously considering those crocs now, lol!

  10. I love this!!! You are so good at putting together girly outfits that have just a touch of sporty about them - adorable! Hope your travels go well :)

  11. Although I haven't purchased any yet you've turned me on to crocs. I actually didn't know they made pumps until you debuted them! I love the color combo you're rocking, the red heels adds the perfect touch to this outfit!

  12. They are sure not the crocs I'm used to Lisa.. They are fab heels. You look so adorable as always. I saw that skirt online and wondered about it. It looks great on you. To me, Target has been a not so fashionable brand but now I'm sporting target pieces every chance I get!

  13. What a fun color combination you have on today.

    I find myself looking at Sofft shoes in a new way. I use to think they were stuffy shoes but their styles over the past couple seasons are so spot on!

    Safe Travels!

  14. So many giveaways. What a great roundup. Have a good trip!

  15. Loving those shoes with that outfit. You are still doing great things with that skirt. Clearly it was a good purchase! Now I may need one too. :)

  16. Safe travels! I adore this outfit from head to toe!

  17. Love this outfit ... and croc heels?!..Seriously!! I've been gone awhile myself so I must have missed your original post on those shoes. They are cute.....and of course I've never worn crocs a day in my life! Lol

  18. I still can't wrap my brain around the fact that those pumps are actually made by Crocs. So are those massaging nubby things included with these too? I don't think I would like them at all. But I have sensitive feet. Hope they can withstand the brutal Trade Shows on your most recent World Traveling Jaunt.

    Black and White Stripes, wrapped in Brilliant Green, sitting on Red Crocs never looked so good.

    Happy Travels to you Lisa.

    I'm off to anthromollogies for some of that Hollywood Tape.

  19. Crocs? You aren't yanking my chain?! I can't believe my eyes. They look way too fashionable to be crocs! Safe travels, Lisa! Can't wait to see pictures when you get back :)

  20. Have a great time! I'm looking forward to your wonderful outfits once you return. Beautiful outfit and thank you for the necklace link. Going check it out now!!

    Have a safe trip!!

  21. I can't believe that your heels are crocs!!! They're so adorable and so different from the plastic cloggy type of shoes.

  22. I still can't believe these shoes are crocs! I just wanted to say thank you for spending time putting together this list of giveaways, it's so helpful! xo

  23. Comfy and cute shoes? Sign me up! I'm gonna keep my eyes peeled for Crocs shoes now... Have a safe trip, and looking forward to your outfits when you get back!

  24. I love the fun pop of color that green skirt adds! I just ordered some crocs for my kids!

  25. Where are you going babe? You're such a cutie skirt lady! How many skirts do you have?


    It's OUT!

  26. Whoa, those Crocs heels are surprisingly cute. Since when does Crocs make shoes that aren't meant for gardening?!

  27. Have fun (or, as much as you can on a busines trip) on your trip! I love this look, down to the orange heels. I was surprised to learn that they're from Crocs -- seriously? The makers of those rubber shoes Mario Batali likes so much made those adorable heels?!?! Color me impressed. I can't think of any fashion brands that I truly loathe. I know that I don't like Uggs, but I did try on some shearling lined moccasins from that brand before and they were ridiculously adorable and comfortable. Too pricey for my blood, though!

  28. Hey gorgeous! I love how you have paired the stripes with color block, LOVE!!

    If you are back in time I'd like to invite you to join my Shabby Apple Dress Giveaway :)

  29. Get outta town! Those are Crocs? Comfy? Cute? Tell me more!!! I was tempted to buy a pair when I was down in Oz, but ... just couldn't do it. Had I known they come in cute forms, well then ...

  30. What a terrific statement necklace! Etsy is such a great place to go for awesome, one-of-a-kind jewelry!

  31. This DVD, along with 30 Day Shred and Boost Metabolism, is hard. But after every workout I feel AMAZING. Yes, I'm exhausted, sweaty, and my muscles are aching and trembling, but I feel energized and sharper mentally. I exercise five days a week, alternating workout videos, and take the weekends "off", during which I find I now have more energy to do everything from working in the garden to running around theme parks. I'm actually sleeping better too.
